My name is Effie Iliopoulos a mother, wife, grandmother, and mostly an artist.
I have been an artist as long as I can remember, from a very young age I would look for paper and pencil to draw. Over the years besides pencil drawings, I have been in some form of art, sewing, cross stitch, tapestries, porcelain doll making ( I am a grandmaster, triple crown and master educator of doll making).
I took up acrylic painting Mandalas in 2012 which I love, I then move onto acrylic painting and in 2020 I started teaching acrylics at Artisan of Australia. My main interest is people, I love to draw and paint faces.
Lately I have been challenging myself to see what else I am capable of painting. I have surprised myself and am now of the thought that “I Can” do that. Exploring subjects that never interested me before…. but that is progress I suppose. With everything you do you need to explore all sides to it, that’s how you grow.
Art takes me to a special place, I get lost in my art work.
